Dear Mr 



; aTg^^J^si 




The Midland for America group herft has today distributed a paper 
back copy of your excellent bookr ^Masters bf f Deceit t to .each^eni^r 
student oaplidla nd High„ School ^ There are 527 senior student ;? 
currently 'enrolled* Our object in* doing this is /that this book £-■ 
be read and to encourage the reading 'thereof .,*we* have off ered^varlv 
ious prizes for the best papers on this subject. ,0f course, to ~-~ 
conduct an essay contest, some rules must 'be formulated and tjie r 
students must have some idea as to how to approach writing their 
papers; accordingly, we promulgated a set. of rules j r a copy oj^which 
is enclosed herewith. If you have; any suggestions as to , how ti> 
improve the content of these instructions or rules" xn the event 
that other groups or cities ask us for advice on the ^matter, vwe 
r wpuld appreciate your suggestions. : ~C*^?\ 

£tr has been suggested that in addition to the cash prizes which we 
t ,* are^ offering in this contest:,, that we likewise^ give each con €est 
winner an autographed copy of your \ book;. We have not made suchr 

1^>mmiti^nt to the students as yet", but would appreciate your auto- 
^apHihg the five copies which we are forwarding to you this date 
trfider Separate cover. 

Weshave'^gt a deadline for the submission of the papers as .November 
18^r As o*&now, we do not know when these papers can be judged or 
■ C j/whe£ the prizes may be awarded. In order to follow up on this basic 
Q^ ideHSjrwe feel that the presentation of the prizes would present an 
^> a I opportunity to have someone from' your department

thoughts on this matter. It goes without saying that we feel that 
it would do a tremendous amount of good with this group if you 
yourself could make such a talk and presentation. If you feel that 
there is any chance of your being able to get here in the latter 
part of December, before the Christmas holidays, or anytime during 
the month of January or thereabouts, we of course could plan the 
presentation of awards to coincide with your convenience. Other- 
l/wise we would appreciate your suggestions as to a speaker or we 
II will make direct contact with FBI offices in this area. 

I made a brief talk to all of the senior students upon the presenta- 
tion to them of the books this morning, and I was most gratified 
with the response and of the apparent keen .interest of the students 
in obtaining more ^knowledge of the Communist conspiracy. I feel 
I that your hookais ah. outstanding basic presentation of the problem 
[ and that the students will learn a great deal from it. 

Sincerely yours,

I watched Walter WinchelTs show Sunday night and

I think more people (should be) should show interest 

in this matter. 



A$$ 



IT 



: I read J. ; JS., Hoover *s 'Masters of Deceit" last year* 

This is the first.time I had spent $4. 50; on a book, but it was 
well worth it! Lfeel it has made me a better American and 
made*me more. aware of the people threatening our freedom and 
country. " : 

In these critical times, I gitess we feel a great surge 
of patriotism^ and I*guess;we ; all feel ; we, should be in these 
men's and women's shoes doing something^ help our country 
instead of just standing^by. 

if eel that jis long* as we have our dedicated F. B. I. , 
we need not !lear losing our country .to aetheistic communists.

O 



I have just finished reading^ your hook, ' Wasters 
of Deceits This I must say has heen one of "the 
most informative and inspirational hooks I have ever 
read. 

I feel I have really -learned something from this 
book both about Communism and how to properly combat 
it as a loyal Aiaerican citizen and also renewed faith 
in our country and government and our ultimate success 
over this struggle* 

Even with all the available evidence it's difficult* 
to understand that certain .Americans at this point , in* 
our history with our heritage, spiritual and. educational 
background, and material wealth and promise, of a brilliant 
future under our form- of government would knowingly allow 
themselves to become even remotely connected with an 
organization so obviously dedicated to the slavery of 
mankind* 

It seems all too inadequate but for you and the 
Federal Bureau of Investigation's tireless effort, 
exhaustive ^resegrch and dedication please accept my 
most he a rtfelt "thanks". 

Sincerely yours, 




lA^

Dear Mr. Winchell: 

Enjoyed your 10:30 P.M. television program this 
evening, especially when you debunked the great lies of Mr. K. 
(the international gangster). Hoping to hear more of the same 
against communisum, continuously.. In. doing so you ate doing 
a fine job in keeping America well informed. As the saying 
goes* "The truth hurts. " 

Incidentally, Mr. Winchell I was also glad you 
recommended the book of J. Edgar Hoover, the "Masters of 
Deceit. ?' But I'm sorry ,to say that this bible against ^communisum 
can not be purchased at any of the stores selling pocket books. 
My friends and many others have been searching the cities 
throughout Connecticut for some, but to no success. Do you 
think that a communist block of some kind is but against the 
pocket book "Masters of Deciet. " 

Yours truly, 



568 Stillman Street 
Bridgeport 8, Conn.

SPOTLIGHT on the 
SUNDAY SCHOOL 

Sunday School attendance reached a total 
of 803 last Sunday morning as the different 
departments pushed closer to their attendance 
goals. 

Again it is the Junior High and High 
School departments who are out ahead. Both 
groups broke their previous highs by 2, 
reaching 114 and 68. * 

Four departments have less than >10 to go 
to reach their destinations on the big world 
map in Stone Hall. The Kindergarteners need 
only 6 more, the Chi Alphans only 9 more, 
the Mariners 60 only 8 more and j the Wo-- 
men's Bible Class only, 2 more. The ( rest have 
only 10 to 20 to go (except the Fellowship 
Class which has an extra high goal in view 
of the room they have for expansion in the 
church sanctuary)^ 

Just two weeks remain. If you haven't 
been in the habit of coming at 9:30, why 
not do something daring this very Sunday 
morning and bring the whole family?

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 9, 1960 



Conference Begins Next Sunday, October 16 

ELEVENTH ANNUAL MISSIONARY CONFERENCE - October 16-23 

Almost 12 months of preparation and planning will come to fruition beginning next 
Sunday when our 11th Annual Missionary Conference opens. Perhaps it sounds like "old 
stuff" when it gets to be the 1 1 th annual but, like the gospel story, the theme of its existence; 
it is ever new for each year opens up new avenues of service, interest and inspiration. That 
is the reason no one can afford to miss the sessions of this great conference. 

Dr- Frank F. Warren will open at the 1 1 :00 o'clock worship service. With a real heart 
for missions, having served in Japan for s^ven years himself, he recently made a tour around 
'the world visiting many mission stations. Dr. Warren is president of our- denomination's 
college at Spokane, Whitworth. He is a noted speaker and surely will open our eyes*for*the 
events of the week to follow. In addition to Dr. Warren, Dr. C. E. Polhemus, General Pres- 
byter of the Synod of Washington will take a few minutes to reveal the missionary aspects 
of Synod causes. 

We shall be hearing throughout the week of the many facets of missionary endeavor 
medical, educational, evangelistic and industrial. We, shall hear* of methods in use-^-missionary 
aviation, literacy-programsr translation work, ^literature distribution. "We will travel from 
tumultuous Congo to foreboding New Guinea, to the new Cameroun and the restless countries 
of Latin America. We shall stop at- the islands of the sea, Japan, and return home for a 
quiet> view; of rural *missionary,4work- in, our- own area and to familiarize ourselves with or- 
ganized efforts ( to^reach^our ,young^peoi>le^ Andrrnoj; for* a moment ^wduld we neglect the 
important work *of ' reaching the , Jeyrs ■ with "the gospel. \ 

All '-this «Vaii be> yo'urs^between^'the dates of * October 1 16 -.23, .mornings and evenings.

TRUE COPY 



380 East 300 North 
Clearfield, Utah 
Qctober 22, I960 



Dear Mr. Hoover, 

Last week on the Walter Winchell Show, Mr. 
Winchell stated that the Federal Bureau of Investigation is offering 
a pamphlet entitled, "Expose of Soviet Espionage, " to the public. 
I would be most grateful if you could send me a copy of this 
pamphlet at the above address. 

I would also like* to tKarifc ypit\an^ all 

the time and effort that contributed^ Ma'st^rsiofobedeit.- It is 
one of the most informative an^prVcautionall on;\ 

communism. I hope it will Kelp 1m : 6^ 

be conscious of the potential dangers of communism. I, for one, 
am most grateful that history instructors at my school dwell at 
some length on this subject, helping us ip understand that every 
American can do all within his power to keep our country safe and 
secure. 

Yours sincerely.

OBSERVATION^ 



?h*M*l^±2L 



The initiative shown by this group in distributing more 
than 500 copies of "Masters of Deceit* 1 is excellent and should call marked 
attention to : ;the book in the Midland area. It is also possible, that other 
g;roups may follow suit. Bound copies of "Masters pf Deceit" would be 
much more appropriate mementos for the students with the winning 
entries than pocketbook editions;.

pleted a condensed version .of ,f The Darby Trial," a novel dealing with communist 
use of Christian techniques to promote its ideology. He asked whether the Director 
could recommend any book which would help him recognize communist influence

I do appreciate your interest in writing on 
October 10 regarding cay views on means through which 
communist influence may be identified; 

In view of your deep concern, I am sending 
you, under separate cover, a copy of my bookJ^Masters 



:of Deceit, " which! was pleased to autograph. to you. I 
wrote the book, with tee purpose, of acquainting students and 
other Americans with the ultimate aims and actual day-to- 
day operations of the c.pm,munist movement. I believe that, 
rareadingdt, together with others of the many published worka- 
r t;on this^'subject, will help you to, recognize the strategy the 
£ 'communists use in their efforts to infiltrate civic, political, 
, ,xeligious and other organizations.

Mr. J. Edgar Hoover

Dear Mr. Hoover: 



I ! ve just finished reading "The Darby Trial 11 which is a Reader *s 
Digest condensed book slanted to portray the communist use of christian 
techniques, principles and preaching to spread their poison* I have been 
in the ministry for over 25 years and have wondered how much and how often 
our men have been deceived by the phraseology and techniques of these 
communists • 

Is there any book that I could read profitably that would unmask 
and help me to discern this sort of thing in the christian churches and r 
any of it*s ministers* I wish I knew what is the thing to do if and 
when I see, such strategy creeping into the religious leadership of our 
day. I would appreciate any suggestions that you might he able to present. 

Sincerely yours

^y P.S. *\fy memory has just jogged me with a thought of something grand that 
happened a number of years ago when I was the pastor of a church in Minne- 
apolis. It was during the lenten season and a member of your organization , 
asked me if my church would serve a lenten early morning breakfast to the 
membe r^ of the Minneapolis staff. They said they were dealing with so much 
[sortaSdhSss) they felt the need of a spiritual lift and they were going to 
aslc'Mifferent churches to serve them a breakfast Carid for the local minister 
to give them a morning meditation each week -during lent. Instead of servings 
the breakfast in our church, I invited them to the manse. We had a wonder- 
ful time by the open fireplace with breakfast and a brief morning devotional 
service". You -have a great group of people working for you.

Dear Mr. Hoover: 



Indeed, it was with great pleasure and pride that I received 
your letter of October the 19th. I consider your contribu- 
tions to freedom, not only for the United States but for the 

.rest of the world, outstanding. IV*S also part of my pro- 
fessional judgment 'that your book 5 £* flasters of Deceit" , 

I should be required reading for all seniors ih our colleges 
throughout the United States. It has been also my personal 
satisfaction that my students have reacted ably and well upon 
reading this book and that this book has stimulated them to 
do further thinking about our primary concern, The Communist 
Conspiracy. 

Please keep me on your mailing list and let me have the avail- 
able documents from the F.B.I, in order that I can convey this 
information to my students, as well as to keep myself posted. 
I remain, 

Most sincerely yours,

Dear Mr . Hoover :

Mr. Ingram, 
Miss GandyJLJ 




\ 




Two weeks ago', while escorting my young daughter to the Public 
Library, I decided to read your book ^Mastersbf Dece it < . It ha 
given me a different slant on c ommunislin^P^r ^e^rSSSSTf^T had been 
to me only a condition that existed in other countries. 

I am, and have been, employed as the office secretary of a small, 
branch of the Teamsters Union (and please don't groan) for fifteen 
years. Several years ago we were getting pamphlets from an 
organization in Philadelphia, located at a Broad Street address.. 
I would read the material. Although no mention was made of communism, 
as you wrote in your book, the arguments or causes for some poor 
down trodden citizen being persecuted by our government were very 
convincing, ,but to me, something seemed wrong. Personally^ felt 
as 32P I had read a dirty piece of literature and would destroy %he 
pamphlets. It bothered me to the* extent that I mentioned it to 
the postman and he suggested that I refuse the next mailing, which 
I di,d, and the Teamsters haven't gotten mail from them since •_ r 

Two* years ago when our president, Mr. Hoffa, w%s being investigated 
by a Senate Committee, and the Teamsters Union graced the front, 
back and^middle pages of all newspapers, our office was visited by 
a gentleman. My immediate employer wasn't in ,so he chatted with 
me. He was of average height, slightly built, attractive with 
graying hair, presumably in his -forties. He introduced himself as 
a representative from an International Union in New York. I had 
never heard of the Union and he didn't seem too well schooled, in 
my opinion, as to what classification of workers his union coVered*. 
It seemed odd and mentally I thought 'he surely didn't come from 
the rank and file'. He asked what I thought of the recent 
disclosures on Mr. Hoffa' s activities and added that all the publicity 
wasn't doing the Teamsters or any other union much good. He added 
that several other union organizations (but named none) were anxious 
to rid the labor movement of Mr. Hoffa and that was the reason he 
was visiting various unions. I told him that Mr. Hoffa should be 
given a chance to defend himself first before any ras:h action should 
be taken, that you do not kick a dog .when it's down and that there 
are always t*/cx ;S*idea to every story. The gentleman floundered' then 
produced a check book showing a balance o'f a thousand, and some odd 
dollars expense money which he was ^delegated to spend on the 'cause' 
He fjir^her added thj^t he had been a fbrmer Army major. I don't kno

what he was trying to prove to me, but I directed him to talk to 
our President or Secretary-Treasurer at our main office in Reading 
Pennsylvania. He left. *I mentioned it to both officers and the] 
said that the person described never came near the office. 

Two years ago, Mr. Hooyer, communism did not enter my mind, bui 
after reading your book and reviewing the circumstances there /isn f t 

\a. doubt in my mind that the visit was inspired by that organisation. 
I might add that I am being considered foolish for writing tl * 
letter and that 1*11 surely have a visitor from the P.B.I. What 
is so frightening about the P.B.I. ? There is no" pertinent information 

'to add although your book 'has educated me to the extent that I shall 
be more attentive in the future. Perhaps the whole matter may be 
picayune, if it is then please regard this letter as fan m^fil from 
an interested reader. 

I thank God for the common sense He endowed me with and fop inspiring 
you to produce such a good boo£. It is not my desire to either live, 
die, or raise my dear daughter under the Soviet of the Uhifeed States. 



Very truly yours,

Dear Mr* Hoover: 

I have read your book "Masters of Deceit" and 
found it extremely interesting* I have' been attending 
meetings exposing the presence of communism in all facets 
of our society and have also beehi studying a voluminous 
amount of literature. 

In trying to fight communism on.a local level, tl 
have a problem with which I need some advice. I have had 
the difficulty of proving the value of my informational* 
sources . : I have quoted various so-called authorities, and 
would like to have you refer me to someone who could, give 
an honest appraisal of my sources of information* There are. 
as you know, numerous publications available but I do not 
want ±0 be in a position of being unable to substantiate 
my claims or find that the authors I refer to do not have 
a legitimate background or are misrepresenting themselves ♦ 

To site examples: * 

Billy James Hargis who has the Christian - 
Crusade .Organization 

Dan Smoot 

E* Merrill Roots 

John T * Flynn 

D. A. R. 

American Security Council 

Ihcidentially, I contacted the local F # B* I* off ice- 
in Portland in hopes they might be of some assistance to me 
but I -was informed 'they could not help me* 

Any information or references ypu care to give me 
would be greatly appreciated* Thank you.

Your address to the American Legion was just re*'ljrcj 

cast fron Sna Francisco and since I did not know 

the finish just who was speaking but the speaker 

said so precisely what I believe and want to shout. 

from the house tops .that I was thrilled I 3 

indeed when I learned that you were the speaker. 

This is to say OHAHK YOU SIR, # > • . 

My admiration for you and your department has been 

without letters but I cannot retrain myself this time. 

When living in Washington D.C.. and not too far from 

thJhouse which you bilt and also when leaving the 

remains of out precious friend and little dog at 

Aspen Hill Cemetery, , I have always felt that I knew 

you somewhat • 

Your books which I only wish were recorded on books 

for the blind, are much spoken of out here and Ipceep 

telling fir ends on phone to be sure to read them. 

Even I rementoer seeing you at Allies Inn a few times 

at lunch time so perhaps you will £>r give my rather 

familiar tone of this letter. / JL — /d^ P-77 — ?/$

Dear Mr Hoover, 




X hays just read with great' 

your book u ' Ma3ters of Deceit ". I_ 

most readable exposition or" Communism 
I have yet come across and I .hope ma 
Australians read if for the "danger i 
as great here as it is in the U.S.A. 

1 was particularly impressed 
with your humane outlook and with your 
conclusion that the remedy is not just 
anti-Communism hut a positive answer 
rooted in faith in a Supreme Being 
worked out in the six aspects you mention 
so clearly. This Is heartening from an 
American in high places. Sometimes, from 
outside, it looks as if Americans (like 
kAustralians) had forgotten the 'rock from , 
whence they were hewed" in the worship 
of the Almighty Dollar. Your emphasis 
on spiritual values gives us once again 
the true voice of America.

To the Ohio Chiefs of Police: 

Preservation of the constitutional govern- 
ment of these United States is an elementary 
belief that all of us who cherish freedom want 
to see maintained. Under this government we 
enjoy^a priceless heritage that is only possible 
because of the sacrifices of many Americans 
who preceded us on this continent. 

All citizens should recognize, understand 
and strongly support the basic principles on 
which our nation was founded and through 
which it has risen to world-wide leadership. 
We all should be aware of the challenge and 
threats to our hard-won American liberties and 
we should be prepared to resist them in the 
interests ota strong, virile and well informed 
United States. 

General Motors Corporation and its Dayton 
divisions fee T« privileged to provide you with a 
copy of "Masters of Deceit/' hoping that it will 
create an awareness of subversive tactics used 
against us, stimulate an individual sense of 
responsibility to inform others and promote 
a greater appreciation of our obligations as 
citizens towards our country. '

Dear 




Your letter dated November, 1, i960, has been 
received j and the ihterest which prompted ( your communication 
is indeed .appreciated. 

On July 20, 1940, William Z. Foster, at that time 
National Chairman of the Communist Party, USA, was indicted 
for alleged, violation of the Smith 'Act of 19*10 oh two counts . 
He was not tried at that time because of ill health. At the 
request of the United States Government, Mr. Foster was 
given physical examinations on May 4, 1954; November 20, 1955j 
and April 25i 1956, by court-appointed physicians, and irt 
.each instance he* was found physically unfit to Stand trial,. 

On June 16, 1959, Mr. Foster filed a, motion ffpr an 
order to, dismiss the indictment on the grounds that its 
pendency violates the Fifth, Sixth and Eighth Amendments to 
the United States Constitution*. This motion was denied by 
the United States District Court on October 22, 19^9, and 
by the United States Circuit Court of Appeals on May 12, I960. 
Mr. Foster appealed to the United States Supreme Court., On 
October 10, I960, the Supreme Court declined to review the 
case provided the United. States Government would determine 
whether or not Mr .-Foster 'would ever be physically fit to* 
stand trial.. Arrangements are presently being, made." by the 
Government to have a. court-appointed physician, again .examine 
Mrv Foster. This, is where the matter stands today, and ,i 
L trust this information will be of assistance to you and your

TOUE COPY November 1, 1960 



J. Edgar Hoover 

Director of Federal Bureau of Investigation 

Dear Sir: 

We are studying your book "Masters of Deceit" 
in our church study group. We undertook this book because 
we felt we needed to know *ore about Communism and how 
to fight it. 

Your book has been enlightening and interesting 
?£*• l K raised a question in our minds about William Foster. 
When the 11 men , of the Party 1 s National Board were convicted 
under the Smith Act, William Foster was severed because 
of illness. What my class would like to know why wasn't he 
later convicted because he went on to become the top party 
official. 

We are sure there are good reasons but my class 
is a curious bunch so I would appreciate any help you 
can give me. ' - * * 

Very truly yours,

Excellent and' dear Sir, 




<a 



II 




I was delighted of making a study of your most excellent work 
'MASTERS GF DECEIT. 

May I humbly suggest a point -which seems to me as lacking in your 

I work which may gain immensely in efficiency if and when this point 
would serve its already fine cohesion: 

Hie scientifically correct wording of the issue that divides now 
J mankind into two gigantic armed camps is HOT: "communism" (which does 
not exist in Russia or elsewhere) or, "socialism 11 versus capitalism. 

The correct wording of the issue that separates East from the still 
free West is as follows: 

" RIESIAN ONE PiiRTSf-CONTROLLED MONOPOIZ-CAPITALI&i 
versus 
PEOPLES* STEADII2 RISING CONSTITUTIONAL CONTROL 
OVER.EREE MARKET CAPITALISM." 
In the light of the correct re-statement of the issue separating 
East frcan the _ Wesi,^ the -Russian cr-Red Chinese system is capitalistic. 
The hub of the entire controversy is this:^ WHO SHOULD OWN CAPITAL? One 
single political party? Or, should the Russian type BIG CAPITIL be broken 
into as mary fragments ,as there are people in a country? Where there 
is a valid ANTI-TRUST LAW, there the fragmentation of capital power is 
the rule of prcduction.Corporate, ownership still does not constitute a 
BIG CAPITAL in the Russian sense. 

When the USA thinkers and writers use, in an idiotic sense, the terms 

1 "COMMUNISM" or, "SOCIALISM" in connection with Russia, they merely bolstm>j 
even if they attack the Russian monopolism, the iiapuctence of men like JV , 
Nikita Khruschew, * Pk 

With your kind permission I take the liberty of enclosing two docu-* j^ 
ments which illustrate the above outlined new approach to the vexing prdfll.QJi^ 
of Russia and Red China versus Eree West. 

■ In w search for light in this matter, no responsible man, including 
yourself, Excellent and dear Sir, cared to find the ultimate point of 
ATapproach,^as outlined in* the enclosures, to the Russian problem that mqr 
^becaae our TO BE 'OR HOT TO*BE PROBLEM. 

Respectfully submitted,^ \$>^£t

The CHILD from the moment of his birth 
can be compared to a guided missile in 
flight toward unfolding into adulthood. He 
is structurally speaking engaged in, entirely 
committed to, and geared for, a steady ad- 
vance toward the main achievement of his 
developmental task — adult existence. 

Living is learning ... To understand human 
_ . development .one* must, understand , learning. - 
The human individual learns his way through 
life.2 

This paper proposes the concept of the 
Engagement Quotient (EQ) as a basis for 
religious education. Through joint efforts 
of educators in its application and critical 
evaluation, this instrument may develop into 
something as useful for homes and schools 
as the thermometer has become for medical 
diagnosis. Part I will describe -the theory 
and practical application of this concept. 
Part II will give a brief evaluation of the 
results of the preliminary tests conducted by 
the author. 

PARTI 

A. The Engagement Quotient expresses 
the degree of impact of the whole self of 
the child on its future. The intellectual, so- 
cial, physiological and emotional segments 
of the child's person are rallied by the E.Q. 
for a life of valor or tragedy.

Education, 2nd Ed. p. 1. 



The school measures the child's actual 
responses to formal teaching in terms of 
school marks. Let us assume that the year's 
grand average of 60 points will form a pass- 
ing mark. This value 60 will make the one 
root of the threshold value of the E.Q. The 
average value of the school marks denotes, 
let us assume, the amount of discernment 
the child obtained in the class tpoms. 

With character measurements one moves 
in the realm of the abstract and the in- 
tangible. We developed, however, a method 
of objective measurements through a com- 
bination of self-rating and multiple rating 
that can be used in measuring the firmness 
of a group of ten traits. 

Let us assume that 60 will also express 
a passing mark of the trait rating. The 
arithmetical sum of the passing average of 
60 for school marks, added to the passing 
average of 60 for the firmness of traits will 
establish 120 as the threshold value of the 
E.Q. The E.Q. will oscillate above and be* 
low this threshold. This oscillation is of the 
utmost import for education. 

B. The techniques for the application 
of the concept of the engagement quotient 
may be briefly outlined as follows: 

I. Visual Summaries: Individual Graphs. 
Since school children receive marks fou^ or 
five times a year, the average of these 
term reports can be graphed. This graph 
may be used for a visual summary revealing 
the child's progress in the school room. The

At one time all the criminals and 'delin- 
quents were'sitting in, our well-equipped 
school rooms. The decrease of the E.Q. has 
been 'accepted in our research as a signal 
for special attention. E.Q. ratings; can de r 
tect personality problems and preventive- aid 
can be' forthcoming* in 'time. Organized re- 
ligion can ^render a ' 'signal ^ service to the 
world by giving assistance when a decreasing 
E.Q. sends outfits S.O.S. signals. 

PART II 

A. .During, the past two .decades a group 
.of 604 volunteer students from ; all oyer 
North America and Europe consented to re r 
port to trie writer the oscillation of their 
E.Q. for a period of at least ten ,^ears, in 
^eyery* single .case. They, were random as to 
language, race, age and education.. In a 
random way, ^a control Group B has been 
formed .and observed. Group B' was not 
given any formal training of the E.Q. Re- 
sults: Delinquency in Group A, None; de- 
linqu^ncy/ni^roujg B, Tbe^Nafignal Aver- 
age.; Those educators .who care to" remake 
this experiment will find that members of 
Control Group B can be evaluated indirectly 
'from school marks printed in the local press. 
Delinquency' in Group B can be checked 
from local press reports. 

B. Experimentation with the* method in 
'the case of 8 special individuals, compared 
with 8 children in a control group, resulted as 
t ollows : Delinquency in - Group A, None; 
delinquency in Group B, One (expelled from 
college). The principal and home' room 
'teacher offered the following comments on 
three cases: 

PupiL"A" entered our Collegiate Institute in 
1932 with standing in Grade XI. She remained 
in the school to complete her Grade XIII work. 
Throughout sHe proved herself a 'fine scholar, not 
only in her academic studies : but also in her quiet, 
congenial attitude in the class room. Typical of 
her . record ds her performance in Grade,- XI: class 
average^ 89; rank in class, 1; E.Q., 186. Her lowest 
;e,Q. was 11 8,, in Grade IV, public school. This 
record was achieved in spite of, a low I.Q. rating. 



*Pupil "B" entered bur school in '.1936' from pub- 
lic school; hence, he * began in ^Grade IX. ; His t schcH 
lastic work proved satisfactory, throughout his five 
years attendance &tl school; he showed ability well 
above the average 1 . *As a class room student "B" 
was* generally satisfactory; 'although in his later 
years there seemed to be some complaint* that* he 
did not hold, himself in check as .he might, have 
done. Companionship,, with one or two others of 
a * noisy disposition^ brought l him into * unfavorable 
: lights though not disrepute.. He was 4 actively* en- 
-gaged in student] activities; particularly student 
government;' in: thisrhe, was t the school's recognized 
leader for two yearsV and in a school of 900 schol- 
ars this meant" many responsibilities. . .*. His school 
records: Grade IX, class average*77, trait average 
69, total E.Q. 146; , Grade X,* class average 86, 
trait average 91, -total E.Q.,/157 * - -, and so on. 
Jtbwest E.Q.,, Grade Y — 113. "P" received;one 
'prize award ^ for ^ his studies, 'a* scholarship it© a 
school of technology. 

Pupil "C" ^His grand average- E.Q. for five 
years of. his 'high school work:, 154 (school marks: 
76; traits, multiple rating, 7^8) . * Upon graduating 
from high school; "he enrolled in the^army and 'had 
'there' been a commissioned of ficer. He had" a dis- 
tingui shed .war-service overseas"; ■ had been - knighted 
by the Queen of Holland^ ^Thile^on the Italian 
battlef ront, he enrolled , for extramu ral work „ i n a 
_uniyersity.^ After an^honounyWe^discharge .frbnv 
-theTarmy, he studied six years, at "a universityT^For 
;these consecutive six years his E.(J. grand average 
had been 182 (academic achievement, 93 traits, 
multiple rating, '89)- Pupil "G"Is the only vet- 
eran to , our "knowledge who earned his medical 
doctor degree r summa_ cum laude (1951). Dufi iis 
all his life, war services included^ he had been a 
non-smoker and non-drinker. Pupil "C" became 
one of our finest, physicians who servesVhis suffer- 
ing fellow creatures' at t a well-known medical cen- 
ter. In this case the re-surging aspect of a sus- 
- tained ? high-level {E.Q. - is -most-worthy* of- attention . 
asa symptom of a direct ^relation of maturity and 
later happy adjustments in |ife;, 

Everyone. of our children^enrolled in Spe- 
cial Group A ?made- up of eight • children 
had been confronted by' "big" problems. It 
has been rewarding, to follow up the oscilla- 
tion of their Engagement Quotients. 

'Editor's note: Dr. Molnar would like to hear 
from any' educators who are interested in experi- 
menting with this method, and 'will be glad to send 
further information, and samples of ^ materials 
which he has used. Address: P. O. Box 562, 
Bathurst, N.B., Canada.

average values of character- fating, can also 
be graphed 'to reveal at a glance the charac- 
ter development of the child. These visual 
summaries save time for the minister, 
spiritual leader or director of religious edu- 
i cation, _ _ 

II. The Mechanics of the ^Method. The 
schools supply the regular grade reports. The 
traits of character are normally, rated by the 
pupil himself.- ' Self -ratings below the danger 
trireshold should be completed by averaging 
k multiple rating by parents, .friends, teach- 
ers .and spiritual leaders. 
_ A four point scale has been adopted for * 
the * rating* of .. character " traits. Simple de- 
scription of/the,trait to be f rated is followed 
by an objective sample. /At the, bottoms of 
each trait listed there are five simple boxes 
numbered from zero to four. Four points 
are; awarded for excellent "rating, three for 
good; two for fair, one for poor. c The zero 
box<is used by I the child? if for some reason 
the trait is unknown* in 1 his experience and 
in 'this case all traits marked" by zero, must 
be deducted from the number of traits listed. 

The rating/is marked in the appropriate 
box Of a 0T3HM,AND ANNUAL REPORT sheet 

iprepared for the use of chur ch, schools. The 
.'final* score is obtained* by* applying the 
formula as follows: 



Sum oi< Ratings 
No. of Traits *x 4 



,= Final Score 



The church schools should, simply tell the 
children to improve. TTie attendant in- 
spiration will show in the E.Q- Trie com- 
mutation , of . the E.Q- oscillations will take 
about two hours of the pupil's and spiritual 
leader's * time per year. 

III. Proposed List of Traits: 1 

1. Glad Church Going: This means at- 
tending 52 worship services and church 
school privileges per year. 

Example of scoring this and the follow- 
ing traits: "Put an X in the proper box — 
Excelten'r-^rGdo'd - 3 f 'Fair - 2; Poor - 1; 
Not at all - 0." 

2. Fortitude: This means standing^ up 
to bad luck. This is the secret of true 



greatness injife.- It was explained by Jesus 
in the, parable of turning the other cheek or 
walking the second mile. 

3^ Self-control: This means controlling 
your emotions. 

,4. - Conduct: This means.-* being- polite, 
considerate; of others in work, play,- or con- 
versation. You can be liked, without being 
a weak drifter., 

5. Courage: This means -keeping your 
head in emergencies, trying to overcome 
danger with all your*rnight. You are not 
courageous when you take siily^ risks. 

6\ Ambition to' Do Very ""Well: This 
means, doing your best t at all' times, doing 
your share for" benefiting all people. The 
best effort line of services is the finest am- 
bition in life. 

7- "Perseverance: Trus means' sticking' to 
a thing' until you have finished it. 

8. Truth Telling: This means ,exacdy 
what it , says, even when' telling the truth 
might ajipear to work against you./ f 

9. (Cooperation: This means to be alert 
arid^willing^to help* dthers, ;f Working"6r" play- 
Jng with tKerh .unselfishly, being* glad when 
others succeed. It also means that you are 
glad j to work and play^ with your parents, 
♦teachers, ministers and friends! 

10. Sense of Justice: Your, sense of jus- 
tice will keep you, from joining secret: and 
destructive organizations. It will^make you 
rebel against unworthy,, .bullying gang- 
leaders who praise you when you fail in 
your school-work. When you have a, sense 
of justice you do not judge people hastily. 

No changes are contemplated . as far as 
traditional curricula are concerned. 

IV.- In r Relation to Maturity: For the 
purpose of this research on education, this 
writer 'assumed that maturity has at least two 
measurable factors: 1. The insight (discern- 
ment) factor arising from response to for- 
mal teaching with hard, best effort, work'; 
2. The firmness of character. They belong 
together like two faces of a coin. Learning 
without strength* of character is empty: char- 
acter training without a store of knowledge 
is blind. Schooling is not the whole of 
education.

EXTENSION OP REMARKS , 

OP 

HON. JOHN R. PILLION 

OP NEW YORK 
IN THE HOUSE OP REPRESENTATIVES 

Saturday, September 12, 1959 

Mr. PTTiTiTON. Mr. Speaker, for the 
past, decade, or longer, I have noticed an 
increasing interest on the part of the 
clergy in this country in economics, pol- 
itics, and "sociology. 

A considerable segment of our Prot- 
estant ministers appear to, be ready to 
replace our freedoms and our form of 
government with socialistic measures. 

My attention was recently called to a 
publication entitled "Christian Econom- 
ics." This most worthwhile publication 
is published by the Christian Freedom 
Foundation, 250 West 57th Street, New 
York, N.Y.. 

Its basic philosophy is: 

We- stand for the free market — the eco- 
nomic system, with the least amount of gov- 
ernment and the greatest amount of Chris- 
tianity. 

I am pleased and delighted to know 
that a publication of this character is 
available for circulation to the Protes- 
tant ministers in this country. 

The following article by Rev. E. F. 
Molnar, Ph. D., is typical of this pub- 
lication. I3r. Molnar's article is most 
timely In view of Mr. Khrushchev's im- 
pending visit to this country:

Who Should Own Capital? 

(By Rev. E. P. Molnar, Ph. D., St. Luke's 
Presbyterian Church, Bathursfc, New 
Brunswick) 

Who should own the means of production? 
Private Individuals or one single .political 
party? That Is the great debate of our 
generation. 

If you believe that the people should own 
capital than you are for freedom. If you 
believe that a single political party should 
appropriate. In the form of a monopoly of 
production, all forms of property, lands, 
animals," factories, machines and money, 
then you have Identified yourself with com- 
munism or socialism — the rule of a single 
political party. 

Public opinion on, this vital question af- 
fords an insight into the most carefully 
guarded secrets of the Communist Party— 
the growing belief of the Communists that 
the whole venture of communism is based 
on a blunder and promoted by bluff. Party 
members are beginning to sense that the 
^monolithic monopoly of production enjoyed 
by the Communist Parties In Russia and 
other states cannot find the way from abso- 
lute tyranny— the rule of terror, the secret 
police, the concentration camps and liquida- 
tion of all dissenters — for a better world. . 

The -writer questioned 100 people on each 
of the following propositions and" with the 
results noted below. In each case the 100 
persons represented all walks of life: 

Should any single political party appro- 
priate all forms of property, lands, animals, 
factories, labor, machines, and moneys? 
Yes, none. No, 94. Indifferent, 4. No 
opinion, 2. 

Should people own capital, all forms of 
property, lands, animals, factories, labor, 
machines, and moneys? Yes, 96. No, none. 
Indifferent, 2. No answer, 2. 



The. overwhelming answer given to .the 
first question shows that communism can 
never take over the central power by vote 
of the majority. People everywhere, even 
In Russia, are opposed to monopoly. The 
world has never before witnessed such a 
complete monopoly and such an absolute 
control of, a nation's human and material 
resources. The Russian arch conspirators 
conjured up into real existence that fear- 
ful and fallacious type of big capital that 
devoured its own children and sets even the 
members of one family against each other. 

The positive answer given to the second 
question shows the will of the' people that 
capital, should not be^united under the own- 
ership of one single party as In Russia. 

The true issue that divides the people of 
the world in our present world crisis is one 
party-owned monopoly of production against 
peoples' free enterprise rooted In privately 
owned capital i.e., means of production. 
The Russian type of production can be up- 
held solely by terror while the production 
of the free world is anchored to the validity 
of law enacted by a majority" vote.. 

By contrast, freemen owning property may 
set up a free government based on law which 
is quite" capable of adaptation not only for 
maximum production but to safeguard the 
rights and privileges and promote the well- 
being of its citizens, leading on to their high- 
est" spiritual and material -welfare. 

The people everywhere should learn the 
plain truth about the fundamental Issue of 
the present world crisis. Guns cannot, de- 
cide the issue. It will be resolved when the 
truth is widely perceived. A government of 
law over a property-owning people can evolve 
as needed to promote their well-being, but 
a government' of tyranny and monopoly of 
the means of production suppress human 
'liberty and human welfare in order to main- 
tain itself in power*

^- Presbytery of Miramichi 

Re INDUSTRIAL PEACE 

To the Venerable the General Assembly? 

WHEREAS, wherever there is production there must be the physical 
means of producing, which is capital, whether in the West 
or in Russia; and 

WHEREAS, the question— "Who should own capital"— which is the hub 
of world turmoil today, has been answered erroneously in 
Russia where a single political party takes the control and 
direction of all capital unto itself to create a national 
monopoly 5 against this system, North America has evolved a 
peoples' capitalism out of the laisser-faire capitalism 
which existed in the 18th and l?th centuries; peoples' 
capitalism means the fragmentation of capital power as 
opwsed to BIG CAPITAL where it is the exclusive property 
of" the one single ruling political party 5 and 

WHEREAS, the structure of the Russian economic system is seen as 
a monolith wherein all capital assets and labour are the 
exclusive monopoly of the ruling party; State capitalism or 
socialism tolerates a multi-party system which should not be 
confused with the monopolistic party of the Russian system 
rigid and inflexible; and 

WHEREAS, to some, the large corporations and powerful trusts 

which exist on the North Americal Continent seem to operate 
in some cases in monopoly and free from competition, in a 
free-market economy, competition can spring up and coupled 
with the protection offered by anti-trust legislation curb 
any flagrant abuse of their position and strength; this 
stands in strong contrast to the monopoly of production 
advocated by the misnamed "communist" party, the establish? 
ment of which monopoly is. dependent on the overthrow of 
responsible constitutional government; and 

WHEREAS, both management and labour should think, feel, plan, 
and move in accordance with the stewardship principle as 
it is revealed in Matthew 25? lU-30; a nominal ownership 
having entrusted funds to their care, they must be used 
with responsibility and loyalty; real ownership of property 
as found in the 18th and 19th centuries was uncontrolled 
and at times irresponsible; with the advent of the amendable 
labour legislation and wide- spread public owner ship the 
use of capital has been curbed of its excesses; 

THEREFORE, the Presbytery of Miramichi humbly overtures the 

Venerable the General Assembly to call on both management 
and labour forces to lay a foundation for industrial peace 
and stability at summit meetings; that they may consider a 
re- statement of the free market- economy 's principle known 
as the RIGHT TO WORK in an atmosphere freed from all traces 
of an obsolete hostile dependency feeling and wherein neither- 







be 

b7C 



management nor labour will strive for, or covet to, establish 
special privileges?, that they may consider devoting a portion 
of their* labour-management research resources to the study of 
a large corporation bought and operated as a model wherein 
firsthand data can be obtained which may contribute to the 
system of democratic and industrial peace; that both manage- 
. ment and labour assume their responsibilities in the ulti- 
" mate defence of the Free World by laying down the founda- 
tions of industrial peace without which a competitive co- 
existence with Russian and Chinese monopolistic economies 
may undermine freedom; finally, be it resolved that the 
Church, under the authority and light of the Divine Word 
calls on both management and labour forces to recognize 
their hostility as. a remnant of the struggles of past cen- 
turies when there was no order or procedure in their rela- 
tions and to control these, obsolete hostile dependency 
feelings so that peoples 1 capitalism may evolve unhindered 
to establish an era of industrial peace in our time*

by USIA should contact Holt, Rinenart and Winston, Inc. , New York City, 
requesting permission fbr an Italian edition.. We noted that the Bureau had 
no objection to Sugar Editore; however, we 'advised Lega^Rome that the 
Bureau desired to approve any illustratiye material in the book. In addition, 
we wrote Edgar T. Rigg of Holt,.Rinehart arid Winston, Iiic. indicating that 
thelirm, Sugar Editore would probably fc<e selected to publish an Italian 
edition of Mr. Hoover's book, and that. we had instructed our Rome represent- 
ative to advise, USIA to have the" italianpublisher contact Mr. Jligg for 
permission to publish the book in Italian.

By letter 10-20-60 Legat,. Rome advised that , . 

indicated, that Sugar Editore would agree to. translate and publish ' ' Masters, 
of Deceit" if the USIA would in turn agree to. purchase. 500 copies of this . 
version. The USIA in Ital y has indicatejJjfchat they would.agr ee to underwrite 
a purchase of 250 copies of the Italian version, but could not promise the- 
purchase of 500 copies because of limited budget. USIA requested the, Legat' s 
k advice as, to how many copies the Bureau will be willing to make a commitment 
for. , , ... 

Legat, Rome states, that each copy will cost approximately $4. 00 
in United States money or approximately $1, 000 for 250 copies; Legat, Rome 
further advises, that that office would require a minimum of iOO copies to make 
available to important Italian contacts. He has requested. that the Bureau 
consider authorizing the purchase of 100 books by the Rome Office since he 
feels that USIA can beprevailed<upohtfo assume .cost for the. remaining 400 copies

Mr. J. Edgar Hoover 
Federal Bureau of Investigation 
Washington, D. C. 

Dear Mr. Hoover: 

Recently there has been brought to my attention The 
John Birch Society , organized about 1959 by one Robert Welch. 
It professes to fight communism. Your book Masters of Deceit 
is an eye— opener and has answered some of my questions, but 
what I should now like to know is how an average citizen like me 
goes about determining the veracity and reliability of such 
organizations. We, as a nation, certainly need to unite and 
actively fight communism, but how does one know when one is really 
doing the job and when one is being duped into helping the communists ? 

Our local F.B.I, and Attorney General's office can give 
me no information concerning this society. Can you? 



Very sincerely yours, 



/s/

p\ We have recently acquired a copy of your 
book entitled^ 1 Masters of^DeceJLtli and wish to commend 
you on the wonderful service 3£Ou have performed in 
presenting to the people of America, what we face and 
what we must do to preserve the heritage bestowed 
upon us by the Founding Fathers. 

The enormity of subversion overwhelms 
one, but we hope to do our meager share in combating 
the problem. 

We believe an act of God must have ha 
a hand in placing a man of your character and abilit 
in the Office which you hold. We sincerely hope that 
you will continue to serve for many years to come. 
This is probably a selfish attitude from our view- 
point but we feel you are a dedicated patriot and 
will continue to fight the good fight until the end. 

We had the opportunity to view the 
film "Operation Abolition" yesterday and must say it 
does make one's blood boil. It is almost unbelievable 1 
(until one has seenr the film) that individuals can 
defy law and order as they did in SanFirancisco. 
That goes back to the lack of -patriotism and nation- 
alism and respect for law and order, which has been 
flouted on all fronts. ^jf 

Certainly something is lacking in our 
educational system, which includes both the training 
in the home and in the schools when young people 
can be swayed by hoodlums in the manner shown in the 
film. 

\ % \A \ 3 LH.l. 

Thank you from us as individuals for 
the constant vigil "you and your Department maintain 
against the?, gnemj;. XO-l;

i have received your letter of November 11*

which prompted you to write is indeed appreciated. 

Your offer of assistance in, combating communism 
is most encouraging; hpweyer, I have always felt that private 
citizens ■, acting through their civic, labor, religious, educational 
and similar organizations, constitute one of our most effective 
weapons Jor inflicting setbacks on the Communist Party. 

Please accept : my best wishes' for success in 
your studies as Ta pre-legal student jat Bradley University; I ;

?ARANOID MECHANISMS IN COMMUNISM 

By John R. Shawver, M.D.* 

In order to understand a man's philosophy we must understand the man. 
Communism is a way of life, a philosophy of living that is essentially the product 
of one man's mind. That man was Karl Marx. If we read the history of his life 
we find that he was very well endowed intellectually. He had no difficulty in 
acquiring knowledge in school. Following graduation he showed no interest in 
holding a job or supporting himself. His energies were devoted to rebellion 
against the established order. " } 

His writings made him persona non grata in Germany. He moved to England 
and continued his writing there. He had married before leaving Germany. There 
were seven children, born of this union. This description was translated from 
an article by Gustav Meyer and is taken from J. Edgar Hoover' s book "Masters of 
Deceit:" 1 "in private life Marx is a highly disorderly, cynical person ... Wash- 
ing himself, combing his hair, changing his underwear and shirts are a rarity 
with him. ... He is often lazy for days, but if he has a great deal of work, 
he works day and night with untiring endurance. Very often he stays up the 
entire night and then lies down on the couch fully dressed at noon and sleeps 
through until evening, undisturbed by the hustle and bustle of family life . . • 
The room overlooking the street is the parlor and the bedroom is to the rear. 
In the entire apartment there is not a single piece of clean and good furniture. 
Everything is broken, tattered and ragged; everything is covered with finger-thick 
dust, everywhere there is the greatest disorder. In the center of the parlor 
stands a large table covered by an overhanging oilcloth. It is cluttered with 

> 

his manuscripts, books, newspapers, the children's toys, scraps of cloth from

liis's wife's sewing as well as some tea-cups with chipped rims, dirty spoons, 
knives, forks, a lamp, an inkwell, drinking glasses, a Dutch claypipe, and 
ashes. In short, all this conglomeration is piled high and on one table* A 
junkshop would have to cede honors to this extraordinary ensemble* When 
stepping into Marx!s room the coal and tobacco smog makes one grope around the 
room as in a cave until one's eyes gradually develop a tolerance to these 
fumes and one is able to make out, as if 'in a fog, a few objects in the room. 
Everything is dirty; everything is full of dust* As for sitting down, that 
is a really dangerous matter. . Here is a chair with only three legs; over there 
the children are playing at cooking on another chair which happens to be still 
unbroken. Sure enough, that is the one which is offered to the visitor, but 
without any effort to clean off the food* You sit down at the risk of ruining 
a pair of trousers ... Such is a faithful picture of the family life of the 
Communist chief, Marx..." 

We see froni this description the lack of realist drive, lack of responsi- 
bility and lack of guilt characteristic of paranoid schizophrenia. Marx could 
not change into a productive, responsible member of society. In his communism 
the world is changed to meet his needs. In his world of phantasy ( An idealistic 
communistic world) every person would be rewarded according to his needs and 
not according to his ability and productivity. This is the old phantasy of the 
schizophrenic. In phantasy the world is destroyed and a new world created. 
The communistic dictator is free of guilt because he is the savior of the 
proletariat. 

Marx said the capitalistic world must be destroyed. In order to -rationalize 
his own miserable poverty he put the blame on the capitalist system. 
Capitalism became the scapegoat. Destroy capitalism and build a new world.

In this New World Marx would be comfortable and all his needs would be met. 
Marx was firmly convincedtfthat the world revolution would be violent and 
destructive. 

The Judaic Christian philosophy teaches that if a person mistreats his 
fellow man he is- a pinner. Because of his sin he suffers from guilt. In order 
to rid oneself of guilt, one must confess, ask forgiveness, make restitution 
and- make a gift to t£e church or to charity. The church is the external symbol 
of an individual's conscience. How did Marx free himself of guilt? He used 
the old paranoid mechanisms of projection, exfcemalization, denial and 
accusation. Anything that the faithful followers of Marx do to further the 
cause is justified. All wrongdoing is denied if it any way furthers the cause. 

The modern communist leaders understand our preoccupation with guilt. 
They have made use of it time and again. If the people of an underprivileged 
nation live in ignorance and poverty it is not because they have had poor leaders 
and have not developed universal education but because the United States is a 
wealthy nation and its citizens have invested certain sums of money in the 
undeveloped country. We, as a nation, are put through the wringer of guilt 
by the communist mobs organized in certain countries that our leaders have visited. 
In addition to being accused as the exploitor of the poor and downtrodden, it is 
pointed out that we used the atom bomb. Of course a thinking person knows 
that if Stalin had had the atom bomb during World War H he would have used it 
against his enemies and perhaps even against his friends. In, order to rid our- 
selves of the accusation of national guilt that the communist leaders "make, we give 
away our substance to other nations. If other nations take from us without 
waiting for us to give to them, we do not stand up for our moral rights, for 
fear we will be accused of being a bully of weaker nations.

Erich Fromm in his book "Escape from Freedom" 2 'pointed out the nsed of 
people to. recreate the family constellation with the all powerful father who, 
although at times cruel and unjust, gave protection to the dependent children 
and saw that they were not hungry or cold* In Germany, Hitler in order to 
establish his role as a dictator found a scapegoat* He told the German people 
that the cause of their misery after World War I and the reason for the loss 
of that war, was the world wide Jewish conspiracy* His remedy was to kill all 
Jews* 

Now the communists of our day say that the cause of all the unhappiness 
in the world is the United States* Destroy the Dhited States and all will be 
well with the world* The other nations are so weak they will fall into line. • 
We must be destroyed because we spy on Russia. Spying is an old communist 
practice which is never a sin for a communist but only a sin when the United 
States engages in this practice* 

Hitler, of course, used all the old paranoid mechanisms that the 
communists use; One significant difference was the preservation of the educated 
people* He preserved the class that supervised* Because of his preservation of 
this class, he was able in a few short years to turn a prostrate Post-World ¥ar I 
Germany into a top world power capable of producing the supplies necessary to 
wage World War II* 

In Russia the communist set themselves back when they destroyed the 
educated people of the old Czarist era. In preparing for World War II and in 
fighting World War" II the Russian leaders found that they must have an educated 
population if they «re to increase production and raise the standards of living 
in that country. This need for a better informed, better educated and better 
trained population presents the Russian dictator with a real dilemma*

In his excellent interpretation of brain washing as practiced by the 
Chinese communists on the captives of the Chinese Army in Korea, William E. 
Mayer^f ound that the captive is influenced to believe that he has been betrayed 
by his country, that no one cares for him and that his fellow prisoners are not 
to be trusted. He is urged to inform on his fellow prisoners that do not follow 
the communist line* Suspicion of others and withdrawal from emotional contact 
with others is the proper conduct for the captive. Brain washing sets up the basic 
foundation necessary for the development of paranoid schizophrenia. It destroys 
the captive's ego. -He no longer thinks for himself and is unable to plan with 
his fellow prisoners because he is suspicious of their motives. The safest 
thing for the captive to do is nothing of his own volition. Ee waits to be 
told what to do. To do what he is told with outstanding ability and zeal may 
be dangerous as it might be a threat to the person who is his superior. There 
is evexy reason to think that the citizen of Russia is subject to the same 
pressures used on the prisoner-of-war in Korea. He must follow the party linej 
he dares not depart from it. He cannot discuss the defects in communism with his 
f ellow citizens for fear they will inform on him. He must not think for himself. ' 
'He is a threat to his supervisors if he in any way becomes superior to 'them. 
Thus the dilemma; of the dictator of Russia. A well educated and well informed 
people are more productive than an uneducated and pporly informed people; but 
educated people have a tendency to think for themselves. 

There is reason to think that the communist dictator unconsciously knows 
that his is a false system. It has in it elements of unreality and delusion. 
The dictators of communist countries are very reluctant to permit the people 
of those countries to vote for or against communism in a free election. There 
is a fear that the majority of people might see the falae ideals and trim s of 
communism.

We as psychiatrists , based on our experience with paranoid patients, know 
that anyone who develops a paranoid condition loses some of his productive 
ability* The psychic energy previously used f or productivity is channeled into 
suspicion, fear, hostility and delusion* If communism is a system based 
essentially on jealousy and envy of others and the determination that through 
the communist system no one will rise above another as a reward for his 
productivity, then it has* a built-in weakness that can be exploited* 

In the United States as a child matures into an adult and moves away 
from his dependence on his father and mother he has symbols to turn to. He 
has his mother country that shelters him with citizenship and opportunity* 
The father symbol is God the Father, If he has faith he is assured that God is 
his protector* The dependence of a child* on his father and mother 1 can in the 
adult be transferred to God and Country* 

The Russian leaders professes to follow the teaching of Marx that 
dialectic materialism is the only philosophy that man needs. Dialectic 
materialism contains two concepts. Dialectic means that everything changes and 
there are conflicts as these changes occur, but man must change with these 
conflicts. Materialism means there is no God, man is all there is and he is 
small and ineffective. He submits to the dictator who theoretically is 
acting for the proletariat. Again theoretically this is the "have not class." 
Actually communist countries are ruled by a dictator who is surrounded by a 
gang. On the death, or elimination by other means, of the dictator this gang 
through manipulation and conspiracy picks one of their members as the 'new 
dictator* 

We see that this line i.e. dialectic materialism serves the purpose of 
taking from the individual faith in himself, faith in God the all powerful Father 

and takes from him his love of country. With this loss of emotional attachment there 

\

is a potential weakness in the individual's courage in the face of attack. 
Early in World War II the Russian leaders realizing that this weakness might 
lead to defeat by thp German army revived and pushed the theme that Mother 
Russia must be defended and preserved by all her people* There was even some 
revival of prayer to. God when the future was the blackest* With the revival of 
patriotism the Russian army became much more effective* 

Marx had the need to free himself of those emotions that are warm and' 
kind. He freed himself of love of his fellow man that is part and parcel 
of true democracy. His> emotions were cold, distorted and sick. Communism 
incooperates this emotional illness, ,-if it is true that communism is a ' 
philosophy that is a ! projection of Marx's emotional illness, then it follows that 
subsequent leaders of the communist world have a similar illness. 

As Lenin secured control of Russia he revealed his paranoid feelings 
by his suspicion and accusation of those who had helped him rise to power. Some 
he banished from the country, others just disappeared. Certainly Stalin had 
a withdrawn, suspicious, hostile attitude toward all of his associates and toward 
the world as well. In 1$$6 Krushchev denounced Stalin in bitter terms. This 
is his description of Stalin quoted, from "Masters of Deceit" 1 "Stalin was a 
very distrustful man, sickly suspicious; we knew this from bur work with him. 
He could look at a man and say: "Why are your eyes so shifty today," or "Why 
are you turning so much today and avoiding to look me directly in the eyes?" 
The sickly suspicion created in him a general distrust even toward eminent 
Party workers whom he had known for years* Everywhere and in everything he 
saw "enemies," "two-facers" and "spies." 







Sb 



We see in Fidel Castro the flat affect, the disorganized, rambling 
superficial thinking and the paranoid projection of the emotionally sick. , 
This type of behavior and thinking has a great appeal to those who feel 
underprivileged and defeated. The large body of poorly educated^ poorly 
trained and poorly paid people in Cuba affords a fertile field for the growth 
of Castro's sick philosophy. He has repeatedly assured the people of Cuba 
that all their troubles are caused by the United States. United States citizens 
and corporations by investing money in Cuban enterprises deprived the Cuban 
people of their chance to improve their living standards. We see the 
scapegoat theme that all dictators use. This may be-simply stated, "The fault 
is not mine or yours, but it is those people who are at fault." 

It is my impression from newspaper accounts that the present dictator 
of Russia, Mr. Krushchev, is not entirely comfortable in the paranoid system. 
that is communism. He, unfortunately, knows very little about any other 
system. The failure of communism to meet all of his emotional needs and 
subsequent doubt about all things in communism being the best, may explain 
. his.confused, contradictory, ambivalent behavior. His personality pattern 
seems to be mixed cyclothymic and paranoid. However, when he is fustrated in 
his manipulations he must retreat into paranoid accusations against the United 
States. 

Paranoid people deny and reject emotional ties. There is left to the 
paranoid one method of classifying others. People he encounters are either 
weak or strong.If they are weak, they are despised and threatened,- if "strong 
they are feared and sometimes respected. We know that paranoid .patients adjust 
best when the rules are carefully explained and enforced impartially. Because

of the paranoid elements in communism the leaders of this country are most 
successful in dealing with the communist dictators when they "negotiate from 
a position of strength rather than weakness* 

SUMMARY: The mechanisms that communists use are not new and unusual* 
They are very familiar to psychiatrists who deal with paranoid people* These 
paranoid mechanisms have a strong appeal to people who are poorly informed, 
have not fared as well as others, are dependent, jealous and envious. Communism 
is an external projection of the emotionally illness of Karl Marx* Marx could 
not change himself. Since he could not change, he did not feel comfortable in 
a world of reality and resotted to fantasy* In communism he devised a world 
to fit his emotional needs. "Theoretically in this communistic world all 
dependent people will find their needs met by the' dictator. There are many 
weaknesses in this system that can be exploited. Because of their training 
and experience psychiatrists have a fund of knowledge that can be of real 
value to national leaders in the cold war against communism.

in the form of swinging two-by-fours. And I have access 
"** * to photographs to prove it. The public is not informed 

on these automobiles, and the unsuspecting ones actually, 
are duped into furnishing aid and comfort to the enemy. 
This, is treason, Article 3, Section 3, .Constitution. 
The gentlemen in charge also claim that the United States 
State Department is mixed up in the deal somehow. Yery 
strange situation. . .and potentially dangerous.. On top 
! of this, the local stores are, flooded with Czech bicycles, 
chinaware, and glass products, to mention a few. 

Mr. Hoover, just what in Gpd*s name is going on in this 
country where a patriotic citizen is subversive^ where a 
little militant action to expose a product results in law 
suit threatsjdt plus an investigation by ; your agency, a ^com- 
plaining letted to a school board results in another threatened 
law suit for "an un-Christian and libelous attack", d direct 
accusation tha^ I am un-American ahcL subversive,, flag flying 
is for nuts, a local college professor waxes exuberantly on 
the merits of the scientists of humanity (Commmnists) and be- 
littles the United States of America to the laughing stock 
of the classroom, a movement, to fly a flag "must be resisted"/ 
togetherness and collectivsness preached and practiced in the 
kindergarten and lower grade schools, the Boy Scouts infil- 
trated with all kinds of odd theories,, and an and on it goes. 
Just what is going on? 

And when is it going to end?? 

Oh, yes, and to top it all off, the mental health laws 
now have been twisted up iritp* a weapon of state controlled 
thought, with cases alxeaiy on record. 

I sincerely hope that you haven't been bored bjr my 
exposition, but I am certain that something needs to be 
done. Do you have any suggestions? 

I have quite a number of friends who think along the 
same lines that I do, and I am quite sure that all of them 
would be more than willing to sit down and talk things oyer 
in more detail with one of your .representatives, if you could / 
spare oiie^sometime in the hear future.

Mr. J. Edgar Hoover, 
Director Federal Bureau Investigation, 
United States Dept. of Justice, 
Washington, D.C. 

Dear Mr. Hoover: 

Yourbook^Masters of Deceit," is wonderful, and 
also frightening, and :enlightening in its clarity. I just finished 
: reading it, and have told many of my friends, and acquaintances about 
it. I will tell the rest of them as I go along, as it takes time, and 
strength to discuss it, and also e&plain it. I hope all of them will 
read your book, and tell others. 

One of my acquaintances said> (very sarcastically):. 
"Why doesn't the President do_something .about the communists?"' 
I told her I would ask you, but what does the U. S. President have 
to do with, & about it as that is your Department, and I know you 
are doing everything possible to >guard our country. 

A friend of mine wants to know what is being done, and 
what £an be done about Americah-bbrn communists, who are work- 
ing against our country? She said we cannot deport them, so wants 
to know; as well as I, how that is handled, as they hide behind the 
5thrAmehdmeht. ttithat,musl.be : kept.a;secret,- it-is-alLright-with us. 

I will appreciate,, and be very grateful to receive a 
letter from you, /explaining these questions, (if permissible) (when 
you have the time) so that I can show .your letter tq,hiy friends, and 
acquaintances. Itvwill be valued very highly, and I shall treasure it 
the rest of my life. I wish you good health, so as to keep up the fine 
work you are doing, and I know it means happiness for you. 

Good luck to you from an.Americari-born citizen, who 
loves, her country very- much,j and wants to.help to keep America free. 

r . 'Sincerely yours, 



P. S. 

Please pass the information along to the Immigration Dept. , that fro

Cnly recently l finished reading your book,J2^^g$Sl^«^9lLDecei1;! , # 
There were two things xjhich stood put. to ihe, and >rhicH iT'te^S^ho^d^'-V^ 

mentioned to you* • V 

* 

Jirst was the fact that the very tactics which you, mentioned as 
being used by the Communists are the same, almost exactly, as those used, 
by the Soman Catholic Church to. jsof ten a .people and take away their free- 
doms* The second was that th§ &reasr which you cite as beirig strongly 
communistic in our country ar& also the areas where we have the heaviest 
Roman Catholic population^ * 

Being an American citizen who has spent the greater part of the; 
last twenty years in Brazil, much of that time being .spent in the southern 
pairt of the state of Ceara where* Rome reigns, I have often lifted a pray-, 
er of gratitude to God because He saw fit to allow me to 'be born in the 
United States of America with its ^tonderful heritage ,pf freedom arid op- 
portunity* Ify heart wis broken vfte4 Senator :Kennedy \wa3 elected to the 
presidency of the UnitedLStates. ' This represents a wedge fori totali- 
I tarian power which, has alread^ shown its impotenc^ to defeat communism 
and which :is just as anxious td rule the wrld*and*tq crash Ihumnity 
under its heell as are the communistic leadeies^ * 

Would it not be possible f qr you to make a careful study of this 
subject and sprite a second book of warning to our people against this 
second, equal danger to our American way of life? On a sta% ( 4 cents) 
whiqh came on a recent letter from friends in the States, I xead>» I hav o e* 
sworn* •• Hqstilil^r against every form of tyranny over the mind of nwViti- * 
quotation from Thomas Jefferson* May that be the cry of our 'Protestant 
leadership in these extremely dangerous and ( dark times!"

To thank you Mr. J. Ed^r Hoover Sir for 
autograph in your book to' me Masters of Deceit. 
Tho I have read your book through more than 
once I think it*s a most wonderful book and I 
shall treasure this book all my life. I only 
regret that I can't be of service these. days. 
I have you beat a little as to the age. I am 
68. I was 68 Oct. £ 2nd. I regret that 
Mr. Nixon didn't get elected. I. sure did my 
best for him. I still believe he should be the 
one, elected. Of course, I feel very disappointed 
but I thank God you are going to stay in charge of 
the toreatest service a man 1 can render our 
Dear God & the good old U. S. A.

Dear Sir: 



I recently joined a local study group with one principal aim being 
a stucty" of Communism and its threat to our country* The more I 
study the broader and more serious the menace appears to be« 

With this group, I've read books by several authors, all of them 
worthwhile and educational, but can only conclude your^ n Masters 
of Deceit 11 to be the best in the field* We consider it basic and 
reqpBHred reading*. 

I want to t express iiy gratitude to you for your many years of 
faithful woric and leadership with the FBI as well as for the 
writing of this book* I know no organization, even with fine 
leadership, can function properly without good personnel, so 
my appreciation includes all members of your organization* 

It is nice; to know we have an FBI to protect the innocent as well 
as pursue the guilty* 

Very truly yours, 



I Mr. Trotter,....

How much would it cost us? I have about 15 interested

I want you to know of my deep appreciation for the 
confidence yon hare shown in the value of the publication. The 
book was written in the hope it would become an easy -to-read 
text for students aad other Americans interested in learning more 
about the threat of communism. Certainly, the students of today 
will shortly be confronted with major decisions in the struggle 
against this conspiracy to destroy the American heritage, and the 
effectiveness of their resistance will depend on their knowledge of 
the history, aims and methods of the communist movement.

WHAT IS THERE TO EXPECT FROM A DOCTRINE 






TH AT FILTERS VENOM AND HATRED? ! 



A 




ft The Communist philosophy is cast in molds^jpf a 
M& and cruel materialism in which venom and Jrtjtred 
toe fundamental ingredients which corrupt the njinds 
J$d degrade the souls. 

S Starting with a most stupid negation of God, Whom 
it brutally attacks though denying Him, communism 
destroys, or better say persecutes, all the moral values 
ttfat have always Signified the human being. It attacks 
till death the very same\foundation of society, which ' 
is, the family. It teaches the children to have no rfespect 
o| love for their parents, forcing them to spy against 
those who gave them life. And to succeed in such mon- 
sjrosity, the communis^ indoctrihators who deny God, 
tf ho, use the schools to serve the objectives of their 
devilish mission, teach the child lessons of imhiorality 
\$iich could only germinate in that atmposhere of sys- 
tematic confusion, of permanent "brainwashing" for 
Wjifch the communists ^are famous, violating the sover- 
egjhty of the mini with 'the most vulgar and criminal 
means of unopposed psychological compulsion. And 
anyone who chooses to pronounce against what is said 
bV the agents of the most brutal tyranny recorded in 
the History of mankind, ihe communist, pays with his 
life and the safety and, wellbeing of his family, such 
crime against what at certain moments the communists 
cSll "Fatherland". 

* few* 

{S| .Communism reduces the working masses to the 
most depressing bondage ever known in the process 
of* world evolution, because aside from submitting them 
t§|an omnipotent boss as the totalitarian State is, with- 
out recourse of appeal against that boss, who is the law 
and sovereignty, it destroys them, the same as it does 
to all other members of society, in their spiritual 
essence, in their right to think, to believe in God, to 
g cultivate love in its noblest manifestations. ,, 

i .What is there to expect of a liberticide doctruf 7 * 
i in the political sense, unjust in the social sense, athf ; 
1 and which filters venom and hatred? Nothing els^-l' 
i slavery, immmorality, poverty in a rich and po^fef 
\< State, and depression and bitterness, in the spirits/ t

Juvenile Crime Figures Reach 
Startling New Ail-Time High 

During recent weeks the newspaper? have stated 
quite plainly, and from the records/ that crime is on 
the increase. Not only that, but the teenage problem 
has reached the point where it has become the concern, 
of the nation. According to latest figures, juveniles are 
in the majority as far as crime important that a boy who is 

just a few short years from 
wearing rompers have a car? 

These were* two of the ques- 
tions and the answers were fast 
in coming. "If you want to 
see the, crime rate among the 
juveniles drop, have them in 
the house by ten in the evening. 
They'll* never get in trouble 
doing their homework or being 
in bed where they .belong." 

"Do^ the kids need a car? 
Sure they do, just like they need 
the lates), modjel jet plane. How 
many kids have appeared in 
court' during the last year for 
stealing gas? How many have 
gone to the reformatory for 
stealing a tire or using a car 
to get away from a burglary? 
The tragic thing about the car 
in the hands of the youngsters 
is the number of them! that-have 
ended up in the hospital or 
the morgue by traveling eighty 
miles an hour, in what could be 
called a deadly weapon. 

Some men gave more force- 
ful opinions. Fritz Horr is serv- 
ing a life sentence and he had 
something to say about the 
situation. "Parents are not 
strict enough. The kids of today 
seem to be able to do as they 
please. I don't think they start 
stealing because they need the* 
money, they have just abput- 
everything they want. It seems* 
awfullv nlain to me, they start* 
stealing for kicks very seldom* 
do they steal anything of great

is concerned. More crimes are 
committed by . persons under 
twenty-one than ever before. 

If nail that has been read isr 
true, juvenile delinquency is a 
thing of the past and could now 
properly be called a reign of 
terror or crime. 

What does the man in prison* 
think of the* actions of the 
young people of today? An 
unofficial poll was undertaken 
and. shows that most men in 
prison agree on a few things 
and agree by asking questions 
£nd then giving. the answers. 

What business does a kid of 
fifteen have on the streets after 
ten o'clock .at night? Is it sp

* value. Unless they are stopped 
before it's too late, tney'll 
graduate to bigger things." 

Bob Curtiss is only twenty- 
six but is also serving a lae 
sentence. He looks back at the 
teen years which were not too 
long ago. "Get the kids off the 
streets at night, but to get them 
off, make sure they have a 
happy, well-disciplined home 
life. No one can tell me this 
does not mean a lot, I know 
different* I started doing just 
as I pleased when I was fifteen 
years old." 

What about the man 1 Who 
keeps ,coming back do prison? 
Russell McLaan is now serving 
his third felony conviction and 
he has his ideas also. "Kids 
are getting completely out of 
hand and it looks like the old- 
fashioned spanking has gone by 
the wayside. In fact, not too 
long ago I read' where neigh- 
bors had a man arrested for 
whacking his 15-year> old son 
with a razor strap. The kid had 
broken, into a car and the father 
was giving him a sample of 
what' he Jiad probably caught 
from his own father. Some- 
times I wonder what my life 
would have been like had dis- 
cipline been given 'me at the 
time of my early teens, by the 
time I was twenty you couldn't 
s tell me nothing,. I knew it all." 

It's not vfery much, what the 
man in prison has to say about 
the juvenile delinquency prob- 
lem. There does not seem to be 
much of an answer here but 
ask yourself the same two ques- 
tions the men asked themselves 
and then gave their answer. 
"What would the kids be doing 
without the car >and the late 
hours?" 

It's really very simple-^they 
would be home where they be- 
long.

OF ''MASTERS OF DECEIT" 

ASAC Dean Elson of Philadelphia, while calling in on another matter, 
advised that SA.Norris S. Harzenstein had been talking with Morris Litman, City 
Editor of the "Philadelphia Enquirer," regarding a forthcoming feature story on 
the FBI to "be carried in the "Enquirer" Sunday magazine. SA Harzenstein presented 
Mr. Litman with ail 
of the conversation^ ; 
for the city schools in Philadelphia to receive copies of Mr. Hoover's book. 

Litman then took it upon himself to contact a Mr. William Goldman, 
movie chain operator in Philadelphia who is also a member of the Philadelphia 
» Board of Education. Goldman fully agreed with the importance of widespread 
1 distribution of the Director's book and made available $500 for the purchase of 
J approximately 170 copies. Philadelphia 1 is submitting this order promptly and 
' upon receipt of the books; Mr; Goldman will arrange for distribution of copies to 
the city school libraries. 

Philadelphia is promptly submitting additional information; regarding 
this purchase so that an appropriate letter may be directed to Mr. Goldman expressing 
appreciation for his deep interest in "Masters of Deceit. "

center city picture house .and two large legitimate, theaters, the || 
Locust arid the Erlanger. GOLDMAN is a member of the Board of 
Education arid is locally prominent in youth, activities . On the 
evening of November 21> LITMAN advised SA HARZENSTEIN that he 
had discussed this matter that day with GOLDMAN and that the 
latter had suggested that he would contribute $500- for the pur- 
chase of "Masters of Deceit" to be donated to the Board of Educa- « 
tion for us'e in school libraries; In accordance with arrangements- 
made by LITMAN with GOLDMAN, SA HARZENSTEIN followed, up with 
GOLDMAN by telephone on Nov. 22 and called upon him the same day, A 
receiving his check for $500.00.. GOLDMAN discussed the work of the 
FBI and "his' personal views at some length, and expressed the hope ; 
that the books he ,was contributing would be useful educational ' 
material to alert young people to the Communist and Soviet dangers. I 

Thereafter, GOLDMAN telephoned to Superintendent of Schools, j 
ALLEN H. WETTER » to advise him. of what he had done; At GOIDMAN^ ^ 
suggestion, SA HARZENSTEIN spoke by telephone with Mr. WETTER-, who J 
expressed himself as being delighted and most grateful to receive . - f\ 
these books. He asked that they be shipped directly to him at the^ O 
Board of Education Building-, 21st St. and Parkway, Philadelphia,/ " 
after which he will arrange .to "use them first" in. the secondary 
schools. " ^JjL - * -» •■ a .. -«•%-"* 4K

appreciation for the extensive and valuable assistance the Bureau 
had rendered to the Board of Education over the past year by way

for the help that was being given by the Bureau in, a proposed TV 
series on law enforcement agencies being prepared in conjunction 
with the Board of Education. (Additional details appear in

I I advised he is employed as a mechanical 
engineer, Propellants Division, TiJyle Laboratories, 128 Maryland, 
El Segundo, Calif., and assumed that perhaps the FBI had 
investigated him relative to his employment. He advised he 
understood the position of the FBI and deeply appreciated the 
Agents calling upon him. He reiterated bis high" regard for 
thfe Director. 



, I advised he has "been very out-spoken against 
communism^ He stated he was quite, concerned about the fact 
that "Masters of Deceit" has been occupying the lower shelves 
in local book stands and libraries and the manner in which 
Congressman -j&ect JAMES Cjf CORMAN had virtually repudiated 
the statements in that bodk during his campaign in a public 
debate sponsored by Town Hall at Sherman. Oaks, "Calif., exact 
date unrecalledi He adyised the John Birch Society and the 
American Legion have been going around and placing copies of' , 
"Masters- of Deceit" on the shelves in places, of easy accessibility 
and where they will receive maximum attention. He advised 
Congressman- .eLect CORMAN had indicated there is no 
Communist threat from within the U. Si but that the threat is 
from the Armies, pf Russia and Red China. He advised CORMAN 
had stated something like, thank qod for EARL WARREN and the 
Supreme Court. 



] indicated a familiarity with the John Birch 



Society and advised that friends of his in , that society had 
told him they had heard CORMAN remark to the effect that the 
Director didn*t know what he was talking about concerning the 
internal threat of communism in the United States. At this 
point Agents immediately refuted CORMAN's a bove scur rilous 
remarks regarding, the Director and informed I I that the ~ 
Director's '.statements are entirely factual,, that CORMAN was 
entirely wrong and that CORMAN cobsviously .was the one wh o 
di<| not know what he was talking about to which | | stated 
he was thoroughly in agreement. 

The interview was terminated Under very pleasant 
conditions and Mr* CORMAN concluded that he had 1 always had the 
highest regards for the Director and the FBI.

The Director is in receipt of a letter dated 12-2-60 
from Congressman W. M. Abbitt, (D., Virginia), enclosing a 
letter dated 11-29-60 addressed to jkr. Hoover from F. Clyd^rUttle 
of Fort Lauderdale, Florida^ Abbitt merely says that Tuttle, a former 



resident in his district, requested that he (Abbitt) furnish Turtle's ^ ^ 
letter to the Director. * — lM L * ~ 

Tuttle in his letter requests that the Director consider 
a promotion plan for "Masters of Deceit" in newspapers. This plan, 
outlined in*an accompanying memorandum, proposes that sections of 
the book be syndicated for a three-month period accompanied by ^ 
illustrative charts, mats, maps, etc. The cost would be paid by 
local publisherr, who in turn would sell space to local sponsors . 
Tuttle would prepare ah accompanying manual for the publisher 
in each area oii how the program would work. A number of testi- 
monials as to Tuttle' s reliability are attached. 

The entire plan obviously appears as a promotion 
plan by Tuttle to make some money. Bufiles fail to reflect any 
information identifiable wife Tuttle. 

From enclosed material he appears to have formerly 
been the editor and publisher of "The Tidewater News, " a small 
newspaper in Franklin, Yig ginia (hence, his acquaintance with 
Our contacts with Abbitt have been limited ( but cordial.

WILLIAM L. BRINKLEY, former soles manager for 
Ltpton's Tea; Chamber of Commerce, Merchants 
Association, Shrine, and Kiwanis executive; 
civic and business leader: 

You want' detailed information. I have known Clyde 
Tuttle intimately since 1925, when xnv company be* 
came one of his clients, and I have worked closely with 
him on many undertakings, I recommend him to you 
without the slightest hesitation or reservation, and I 
will tell you why. 

As an editor, publisher, and owner of newspapers, trade 
papers, and magazines, and as an advertising agency 
executive and owner, he has been closely associated — 
as an executive or advisor — with many lines o£ endeavor 
and many business enterprises from small retail shops 
to manufacturing industries and financial institutions; 
and from local civic promotions to national projects. 
He has conceived ideas, developed plans, and executed 
complete programs both clvio and commercial. He has 
analyzed markets and the potentialities of products; 
aided in the promotion and development of companies 
and organizations; employed, trained, and directed per- 
sonnel* 

As an agency man he created and developed such ac- 
counts as the **B O" remedy. In the publishing field he 
established and published the official publication for 
fourteen state leagues of municipalities, as well as pub- 
lished newspapers and magazines in several states- As 
a promotion 1 man he originated and promoted the Ap- 

Salachian Scenic Highway from Canada to the Gulf of 
fexico; a famous state advertising program; he con- 
ceived, planned, financed, and directed the foremost 
municipal government survey costing $565,000.00, and 
other local, state, and national* projects, 

^ His work has given him a rather sound understand- 
ing of human nature and the reaction of the mind. He 
is able to sell ideas and plans to others and instill the 
enthusiasm to carry through to success, as evidenced by 
the fact that he has induced level-headed business men 
to turn hundreds of thousands of their hard earned ^dol- 
lars over to him to spend as he saw fit- 
He has conceived, planned, and carried through un- 
dertakings that required impressive organizational co- 
operation, including governors and other state officials, 
college presidents and other educational officials, mayors 
and municipal officials by the hundreds, business ex- 
ecutives, trade associations, civic groups, women's clubs, 
and individuals. He..has„been very successful in devel- 
oping hard working, efficient, and loyal- employees, „ 

.He is fortunate in being able not only to originate 
- constructive and effective ideas, but to evolve practi- 
cal plans for carrying such ideas to successful fruition, 
and further still to direct the execution of those plans 
to ~ assume maximum results. By sound ability, Keen 

imagination, practical anaylsis, and wide experience - he

A GRASSROOTS PROJECT 
I 

FOR [FREEDOM 



Our Enemy: , , t *, ^ * - -v 

"Communism is the major menace of our .time! 

"Today, it threatens the very existence of bur Western Civilization! 
Communism, £s r more ,than an economic , political;, ' social ; or philosophical 
doctrine/ It is a way of life; ,a falser materialistic religion! It would 
strip man of his belief in Gody his heritage of freedom, his trust in love^ 
justice and mercy* Onder communism, all would become, as many already have, 
twentieth century slaves! 

"Today, it is a dedicated, conspiratorial group operating under modern 
conditions as an arm of revolution* There is no doubt that America is now 
the -prime target of international communism! 

"Every citizen has a duty to learn more about the menace that threatens 
his future, his home, his children and the peace of the world! 

"If you will take the time to inform yourself, you will find that 
communism holds no mysteries* Its leaders have blueprinted their objectives — 
(Just as Hitler did!). The time is far too late not to recognize this "ism" 
for what it is -- a threat to humanity and to each of us!" (Extracts from 
"Masters of Deceit" by J*. Edgar Hoover. L 

Our Problem: 

"Masters of Deceit" is the most effective piece of ammunition so far' 
produced by America for the battle of men's minds. Were it possible to force 
every* citizen to read, study and understand the message this book brings, much 
of the danger we face in communism would be removed. In America we cannot 
force our people to do things as they do in the communist world, so we must 
attempt to achieve our purposes by indirection. 



<-« ' 



The^yast majority .of our ^citizens ;will not .attack a large, serious 
book, on what they consider mostly a subject out of their domain — something 
for their government to solve! Yet the necessity to inform and awaken the 
vast masses of our people to the danger that confronts not only their govern- 
ment but each of them, is of paramount importance to the salvation of Western 
Civilization and all its people. 

Our Plan: 

To do that we must present in concise, easily digested doses the story 
this great book presents in a manner in keeping with the rush and 'self cent er- 
edness of our times* The story told by "Masters of Deceit" must be broken up 
into short compact, dramatic and dynamic subdivisions, effectively illustrated 
and presented in large size, striking layouts to attract attention and arouse 
interest as the reader glances through his favorite hometown newspaper* When' 
his interest is aroused the brief 600 to 800 words 1 must carry conviction and j 
stimulate action by presenting a complete, easily understood unit of the whole 
story, yet obviously just a unit of the complete story of the enemy we face. 

The Medium: 

The. hometown newspaper, weekly or daily, is the most widely and thought- 
fully read, because it presents the news closest to; the mind and heart of the 
reader -- news about him, his family, his neighbors, his community and his local 
problems. These 12,000 odd publications reach practically every home in America 
and present the message under well-known local sponsorship, at a .time when the 
reader is in a receptive mood. The page or half-page display space with 
powerful illustration, eye catching arrangement and easily read wording would, 
arrest the attention and assure reader interest. To assure that the reader 1 s 
continued interest will be made effective, each message will be numbered as 

- 2 - 






one of a series, arid, each will; carry the/ admonition to watch for the ;hext unit 
the following week. In each unit the reader will be urged to secure a copy .of 
the book, ^'Masters of Deceit", ,by Jv Edgar Hoover, for regular home reading, 
study and reference. * . " '' * * - ' *~ * ' *~ 

Additional weight will be added by the sponsor which will be local banks, 
manufacturers or other large local organizations, well and favorably known in 
the community. 

Active Community Participation: 

Through the active cooperation of the local publisher, the active cooper- 
ation of local government officials, schools, churches, civic and fraternal 
organizations and all local groups and speakers will be urged to emphasize the 
importance of these messages, and to urge every person to read and study every- 
one of them. Thus it will become an aggressive localized grassroot project " , 
to interest and arouse every citizen to the danger which confronts us — and * 
how it must be met. *' 

T 

Financing: 

This project, unlike most such endeavors, will be completely self supporting. 
The publication will, purchase the complete proofs and mats of each unit — 
ordering thirteen units, a three months series, at one time. He will get not 
only the mats and proofs of the units but a complete program for his community, 
and how to organize and promote it. The cost of illustrations, compositon, 
program, etc., will -be so prorated that each publisher will pay his part of the 
cost of the entire project. 

Each publisher in turn will charge his sponsors a sura that will pay for 
his costs of the local community jprogram, plus a small profit. The .sponsors 
iri turn can deduct the cost of the local community program from their income 

- 3 - 



taxes as contributions. 
t 

This idea of making such a worthy program self supporting in each com- 
munity is not new or experimental. It is being done and has been done for 
many years, and it, is an established success from every standpoints Its 
merit is vouched for, also, by the fact that it is the method used by The 
Advertising Council for all their national/promotions. Its success is 
assured* 

The operation of the project would be rather simple ♦ You would gsant 
us the exclusive rights to use the contents of your book, "Masters of Deceit", 
for this purpose ♦ The book is so written that it naturally breaks up into 
approximate units or subdivisions. Some editing, additions, condensations, 
adjusting and rearranging, may seem advisable, but basically we want the story 
as you have told it. Preferably, we would, like for you to prepare these sub- 
divxsxons of the book, but if for any reason you cannot do this, we would 
secure the assitance of* competent writers to do the job most effectively, and 
then submit, the complete !unit to. > you ■;<' -.*"""- '' ^ * 

We would secure the service of the best available artists to properly 
illustrate each unit, in the most forceful manner possible. We would prepare a 
manual for the publisher in each /community with a complete putline of the pro- 
gram for his area, together with all necessary information and material. We, 
would handle the sale to the publisher, and all matters pertaining to the 
campaign. We would secure the, cuts, mats, proofs, promotion and execution of 
the project in detail. You would have no responsibility or annoyance in anyway 
with the operation of the project. 



- k - 



n 



We would pay you a royalty for the use of your material at so much per 
unit for each publication using it. But over and above that we firmly believe 
that this offers an exceptional opportunity to aid in informing and arousing 
the average citizen to the enemy we face, .by intense, aggressive cpmmunity 
cooperation, study and effort, spread throughout the nation I

no difficulty, in remembering the 
■readiness with which The Gra- 
phic projected* itself into politics 
In -an era ^ when Pactional differ- 
ences made enemies of friends, 
Such a state of affairs existed in 
Franklin for several years. One 
result of, the schism* was the pro- 
posal to establish a weekly news- 
paper as a rival to The Graphic, 
the editor of which was J. Peter 
Holland: In the issue fo^October 
6, 1905, occurred this illuminat- 
ing paragraph: 

"It was revealed to us on

Finally, The Tidewater News 

First editor of The Tidewater 
News f was Paul Scarborough, 
who came to Franklin fromMur- 
freesboro, N. C, where he edited 
oriefly the Hertford Herald* The 
youthful editor - he was then 
only 23 years old-was a gradu; 
dte of Wake* Forest College and 
had done one' year of postgradu- 
ate work afJohns*Hopkins Uni- 
versity ih Baltimore, Md; He was 
described by Dr. Bryant, a stock- 
holder in the< company, as. a 
"brilliant young man." He and 
the late Dr. E. A. de Bordenave 
alternated as postmaster of 
Frafrklih, depending on whether 
the f 'Democrats or Republicans 
were in control of the national 
government, During his second 
term as postmaster he y/as suc-

^Gentlemen: ' 

Congratulations upon your fiftieth - birthday! You 
have, "during your existence, . made a most substantial 
.and/ worth while coritribution to; the solid growth of the 
"Town of Franklin and the County of Southampton and 
the other area you serve. To my mind no section of 
^Virginia rests upon a more solid foundation" and its 
sound growth over the years augurs, well not only for 
its future, but for that of our State and Country. South- 
hampton County, carved from my County of Isle of Wight 
over three hundred years ago, has, an history of which, it 
Js justly proud and the inspiration gained therefrom no 
* doubt is in no small part responsible for its growth and 
splendid accomplishments. 

Here ' in America the publication of a newspaper 
carries with it an obligation and a responsiblity almost 
■without parallel in history. Over the past thirty odd 
years it has been my pleasure to observe you in action 
and it is my considered opinion that you have been ever 
conscious of your role in , our way w of. life ^ and have 
^fulfilled your every obligation in a fnost commendable

Dear Mr. Tuttle: 

I -wish to take this means of congratulating you peo- 
ple in Southampton County upon the observance of your 
300th Anniversary and to commend your paper for its 
calling attention to this by the publication of your Golden 
Anniversary Historical Edition .^ 

Southampton County has, during its 300 years of 
existence, contributed immeasurably to the great history 
of the Commonwealth of Virginia. Its people have al- 
ways been among our choicest citizens and their con- 
tribution has been "one of 'continuous uplifting of our 
■society. Through the years the history of Southampton 
County has been one of. progress and achievement and 
the results of their activities are seen in the present 
place that, the county., holds * among the communities of 
- our nation. 

The people of your county are today exemplifying a 

continuation ► of the -fine * heritage which'-, has* been theirs 

and their attempts to better themselves . year , after year 

Vby the promotion of agriculture and industry speak well 

^for the motives which they show forth. 

I want to especially commend The Tidewater News 
"*3for the progressive leadership which it has given to the 
lipromotion of Southampton County. * It is always encour- 
v aging to find newspapers which are contributing to the 
""development of the community, but I feel that the work 
Ibeing -done by your paper and the services rendered are 
tdf exceptional character. OC have been impressed par- 
ticularly in recent months by your continuing efforts to 
promote the growth of agriculture in Southampton and 
your efforts have been noted -with considerable interest 
by high authorities in both the Legislative and Executive 
branches of the government. I believe that through the 
"continuation of these efforts much can be done towards- 
inspiring- your people to further progress. 

T "wish to extend my hearty congratulations upon 
the occasion of your Golden Anniversary and to wish 
you weH in the coming years. Your past contributions 
have been such as to lend emphasis to your place in the 
community and upon the basis of these activities I have 
every reason to believe that The Tidewater News will 
continue to prosper along with" the community 'which it 
so ably represents. 

It is a pleasure to serve you people in the Congress, 
and whenever I can be of assistance in any way I want 
you to feel free to call upon me. 
With kindest regards, I am

Dear Mr. Tuttle:

The Tidewater^ News to celebrate its fifty years of service 
to the people of your area by" publication! of an Anniver- _ 
sary ^Edition . dedicated to^ the history- of Southampton^ * 
u County. ~ Yours vis .a?" large , and historic ? county with a* 
record in war and in peace of. which its citizens well*may^ 
be proud. J '" 

Southampton was among £tie first Virginia counties to 
take a stand in the cause of American independence send- 
ing aid to the suffering patriots of Boston even J>efore the 
outbreak of 'hostilities and, later supplying volunteer mili- 
tiamen to protect the Capital at Williamsburg. The coun- 
ty's fertile soil has_ made it a leading producer of peanuts 
and one of the largest cotton growing counties hr Virginia 
and growth of industries to balance the agriculture of the 
county has furnished steady employment for its residents 
and has stimulated growth of its population. 

These things I know about your background and 
characteristics a* a county but I shall look forward with 
keen interest to the promised full -exposition of South- 
ampton's religious, educational and culturla activities and 
its progress in the fields of agriculture, commerce and

the nearly 39 years since* his ar-

On January 18, 1886, when he 
took charge of the Gazette, tHe' 
town boasted a population * of 
only 427 persons. Within a few 
months after his arrival ^ in 
Franklin he bought the Gazette 
and changed its named to the

To the White Voters of 
^Southampton County. 

If any white man in Southampton 
County is thinking of voting the. Re- 
publican ticket, he should remember he 
is voting to .tax the white people to 
provide negroes with free books, 
will cost at least $100,000 a year to sup- 
ply colored, school children -with .books. 
Of this amount the white people will 
have to pay $96,000, while the colored 
people will pay "less than $4,000. A 
twenty-five cenl, First -Header given to 
a colored boy -will- mean this; — that the 
colored people will contribute one cent 
to pay for this book, while the -white 
people will contribute .the other, twen- 
ty-four cents. Should . not the negro 
at least j>ay for his school books? Our 
white children throughout the country 
districts need better schools, better 
teachers, and longer terms. Must they 
wait for these things because the money 
of the white people Is, to be turned over 
to the negroes for -free books? he ne- 
gro receives from the State each year 
for his schools between $423,000 and 
$450,000. Of this amount he Pays about 
$85,000. The colored people of, Virginia 
are therefore receiving for their public 
schools at least $350,000 a year more 
than they are paying in. 

There is another side to this Question. 
There is already a strong feeling 
among the white people of Virginia that 
the negro ought to contribute more for 
his schooling than he now does, and 
that the public school education he is 
getting Is not doing -him. much good. 
There is a sentiment to divide the 
school fund. Any attempt to force the 
white people of Virginia to provide free 

sentiment to grow. Wo believe that the 
worst blow that can be struck at the 
negro will be the attempt of the Re- 
publican party to. force the -white peo- 
ple of Virginia to* give the negroes their, 
schoolfoooks. The white people will not 
submit to this. They ought not to sub- 
mit to it. The self-respecting and In- 
dustrious negroes themselves ought to 
oppose any such scheme," because It Is 
certain to arouse a strong feeling 
among the white people -against giving 
any money for colored schools. 

The Hanover Herald states the pur- 
pose of the Republicans in their "prom- 
ise of free books. It says: 

"By a bribe of free books, at the cost 
of -white taxpayers of the State, the 
negro Is to be aroused again to work| 
with and for the Republican party. He 
is to be taught to read and write not 
only by the "quick lunch" method, but 
on the "free lunch" plan, in order to 
make more voters for the Republican 
party. Such a scheme, if successful, 
will perpetrate an outrageous wrong on 
a generous and* "patient" people."

©IINEOLA, £i. V.. Ov-;. Xi. — a 
may be termed a neck and neck finish 
in the International t*ato race Hemery 
of the French team in an eighty horse- 
power darracq won the second race 
for th Vanderbilt cup from Heath in 
a ninety horsepower Panhard. The con- 
clusion of the race was so exciting that 
the spectators In the grand stand be*' 
came delirious -with enthusiasm. The 
women were especially vociferous in j 
expressing their appreciation of what 
was probably one of the> greatest and 
most thrilling automobile races ever 
run. 

The winner covered the course In 4 
-hours, 36 minutes and 8 seconds, an 
average speed of 65.44 miles an hour. 
Heath and Hemery fought for the 
lead every foot of the long route. Time' 
and again they passed the grand stand 
side by side. As larger cars blew up 
or climbed telegraph poles or hurdled 
across ditches along the roadside the 
two Frenchmen kept their machines 
moving without accident or mishap. ~ 
As Hemery shot over the line Heath's 
car was less than 200 yards behind. 
Although the elapsed time between 
them appears as three minutes thirty- 
two seconds. Xt was like a finish in a 
horse race in which the two leaders 
fight down the stretch for the lead and 
ono wins on the stride. -Heath's time 
was 4 hours, 39 minutes and 40 seconds. 
Joe Tracy of the American team in -a 
ninety horsepower locomobile finished 
third in 4 hours, 58 minutes and 26 
seconds, and Lancia of Italy, after going 
through a collision when he -was in the 
lead on the eighth round and repairing! 
his HO horsepower Fiat, was fourth in 
5 hours and 31 seconds. The race was 
then called off to avoid accidents to 
spectators, who crowded the track. 1 

"It -was the greatest cup race ever 
run," declared Mr. Vanderbilt. 

No one -was killed, but several were 
injured. The most seriously hurt was 
iVicho73» it-t-Wtdnerf, -CJ^tstSdAj^nV^S^xa^fes 
iclan. The Christie car crashed into, 
the Lancia car at Willelt's Crossing on 
the eighth round, throwing Christie and 
the mechanician twenty feet and break- 
ing the latter's left arm. Christie es- 
caped injury but had to withdraw his 
ear from tho race. 

Foxhall Keene's car was wrecked 
early in the race. Several other ma- 
chines were practically put out by min- 
or accidents or failure of their mechan- 
Ism- 

The French automobile driven to vic- 
! tory in the race by Hemery was badly 
damaged by fire -here, and one -work- 
man was burned about the head as he 
had attempted to "save the car. It Is 
helleved the accident was due to the

Dear Reader: 

It has been very difficult to decide what to say in this space 
marking the centuries old development and progress of Southampton 
and the Fifftieth Anniversary of service to the people of that area by 

by The Tidewater News your Home newspaper. I have been active 

here in that service for but a moment of that period, yet I am very 
proud to be a small part of the past, present and future of this won- 
derful area. 

Perhaps I should just say, "Congratulations on your glorious 
history and wonderful progress through the past generations and the 
prosperous and delightful area which you have produced, may you in 
the future secure the greatest benefit for the greatest number from the 
abundant opportunities God has placed in your hands." 

But, knowing me, you will know that I can't stop there. The 
policy of The Tidewater News for the past, present and the future has 
been set out on this page in articles appearing in previous issues 
of your Home newspaper during the past fifty years. 

I must grasp this opportunity to urge you to really follow the 
example of your illustrious ancestors who were not satisfied with things 
as they were, but who created opportunities to make the most of the 
great gifts God had placed in their keeping. Southampton is a great 
county, and nowhere have I ever found finer people. But too many 
of you are sitting on your hands and on other people's hands, too. 

I don't want to see Franklin or our other towns become big 
cities. If that happened 1 would move away. But X do want to see 
it develop and prosper, so that it will be an ever more beautiful place 
in which to live and work. I believe that the present generation has 
the duty and the responsibility, and the challenge and opportunity, to 
improve and develop our towns and their areas to the maximum of 
their ability as provided by a generous Providence, so that its children 
and grandchildren will not have to seek opportunities, livelihood or 
homes in other sections. God did not intend us to be robbers of His 
generosity, taking all and replacing nothing. He expects us to leave 
our communities modern, up-to-date, progressive places where future 
generations can also make a pleasant living and enjoy their lives in 
comfort, plenty, and pride of home. He provides us the ability, the 
materials, and the opportunities to do this, and if we fail we shall be 
slothful servants, condemned by our descendants. 

Remember the parable of the landlord and the three servants? 
We can not be leeches on the community sucking its life blood, and 
hold our self-respect in the face of the judgment of our children and 
of our God. "We must do our best with the talents our Landlord en- 
trusted to us, -without excuse or equivocation, or we shall face con- 
demnation. 

New generations are on the way. "What shall be their verdict 
on our stewardship ? Shall they be ashamed of the community and 
area -we leave them, or shall they say -with pride, "I am from Southamp- 
ton County, Virginia I" 

Let this record of the past be your inspiration for the future. 
Mistakes and achievements of the past are but guide posts for the com- 
ing years and generations. 

"No man is an island."
